how much weight can my aquarium support?
I have a 100 gallon tank and picked up an industrial automated feeder. Originally, I was going to mount this on an adjustable bracket to a piece of wood, acrylic, etc. against the inner side of one of the small walls of the tank. On the other side of the wall, I was going to mount another board, piece of plexi, etc. to distribute force. I was then going to clamp the front board to the rear board, sandwiching the wall of the aquarium in between.
The top of the aquarium has a plastic lip that goes around the outside, with a "thwart" in the middle. I was also thinking of mounting something on this.
This whole setup is probably going to be around ten pounds. It occurs to me that this might be way to much for the top of the aquarium, let alone the side. What do you think?
